We all have the capacity to live a life that is filled with joy. This is the feeling of being truly happy with what you have and the world around you. Being joyful is about inspiration, passion and motivation. It is about setting goals and taking time out to do the things you really enjoy doing. When you are joyful, your whole body benefits, especially your heart and your mind. In fact, research shows that joyful people have less chance of having a heart attack, healthier blood pressure, lower cholesterol, weight management, and decreased stress levels. Also, studies show that happy people are more likely to exercise and eat healthy foods, sleep better and avoid smoking. Fill your life with joy for better health and well-being.
5 Ways to Add More Joy to Your Life:
1. Keep it simple. Do you find that you often have so much on your plate that it is difficult to even think about enjoying the good things in life? If so, it may be time to take a serious look at what is truly important to you. If you can cut out the unnecessary, you leave yourself with more time to do what truly makes you happy. Try to stop overstretching yourself, learn to say no every so often, and make time for yourself and the people you love.
2. Make a conscious decision to enjoy life more. In their book The 9 Choices of Happy People, authors Rick Foster and Greg Hicks write, "Intention is the active desire and commitment to be happy ... It's the decision to consciously choose attitudes and behaviors that lead to happiness over unhappines." Once you intentionally decide to be more joyful, you will find more reasons to be happy on a regular basis.
3. Make your own personal joy list. Writing a list of the things that make you truly happy. Try to write down at least 10 things that make you happy, and then strive to incorporate those things into your life on a daily basis.
4.. Spend more time with the people you love and with other happy people. Research by the Harvard Medical School shows that happiness is contagious, so the more you spend time with happy people, the more that happiness will spread to you and your friends and your friend's friends and so on.
5. Be kind to someone else. When you go out of your way to make someone else feel good, you will often find yourself feeling good as well. Sometimes all it takes is a random act of kindness, a small compliment or a smile to brighten up someone's day, which in turn will make you feel happier and better about yourself.
Know we just need to take the decision to be happy!
